From the outside this car is modern looking, with a grille and shape at the front unlike people movers of the past.
The longer bonnet almost looks SUV-like, and certainly not like the blunt nosed earlier models.
The inside follows a similar modern design with a shiny speckled strip along the dash with little diamond shapes embossed into a panel along the front, which matches the accents on the exterior. My eight-year old loved it.
In some ways it’s like the inside of this car was designed by a kid. They would say, “Let’s have shiny diamonds on the dashboard, Mum! And we want 13 cupholders, and USB ports for every passenger! Full air conditioning controls in the back seat! A flat board for playing games in the console between the middle row. Please Mum! Please!!!”
The seats in the Carnival S are fabric and quite simple (and firm), with little option for comfort adjustments. The non-leather steering wheel cover feels quite basic, and a shiny black plastic strut on the steering wheel doesn't add much to the overall look.
